New Employee Orientation

Congratulations on your new appointment, and welcome to Washington State University!

Join us as we explore Washington State University history, pertinent employment information, invaluable resources, and benefit options available to you.

Our New Employee Orientation is designed as a three part workshop over the course of one day.  In the morning, we conduct the first portion which is applicable to all employees.  In the afternoon, we split off into two different retirement sections depending on what your employment type is; there are different retirement options for different employment types.

We highly recommend that all new employees attend our New Employee Orientation as it helps to alleviate unknowns, answer employment and benefit related questions, and more importantly it fosters a smooth transition into our community.
